About the Book:

From the bestselling author of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON comes book 2 in an out-of-this-world new series packed with epic adventure, thrilling space travel and forbidden Magic. 

There is no Magic here on Earth. At least, that’s what you’ve been told… But in an ordinary-looking house in an ordinary-looking village, live a group of children who have just uncovered a secret.  A tiny and helpless Magical Creature lost far from home leads the O’Hero-Smith children on another Starcrossing adventure through the Which Ways and across the galaxy. The children have a plan to get little Bug back to the fiery-ice planet where it belongs, and to prove to their parents that they can be trusted with Magic along the way…  But a witch’s curse, venomous snowsnakes and a gang of fighter robots are waiting for them through the Which Ways.  The fate of the galaxy is once again in their hands – they better not mess it up!

A family with a Magical secret …

A child with a powerful Gift …

A story that is out of this world …

WARNING: Contains Dangerous Space Travel and Very Illegal Magic
